Bees (Anthophila) in Lancashire

Prompt Pest Services promote the protection and safeguarding of bees and will only carry out a treatment where there is direct threat to human health.

Bees are the main pollinators of our wild flowers, vegetation and crops and therefore it is important to take this into consideration.


There are many species of bee in Britain and these are broadly divided into three groups, Honey Bees, Bumble Bees and Solitary Bees.

The pictures below show a Bumble Bee, Honey Bee and a Masonry Bee

Whilst most social bees can sting, they rarely do so if left alone. Wild bee numbers are in decline throughout Britain and are best left in peace.
